Today is pi (π) day. I know it’s nerdy, but I think it’s a cool thing, too.
It is a day to celebrate math.
It is a day to make (and/or eat) pie.
It is also my ex-husband’s birthday.
So I wished him a happy birthday, hung out with nerdy math geeks, and made these spinach quiche tarts (savory pies).
These are pretty easy. I just made two to take for lunch today, but you can easily make more by increasing the ratios of the recipe.
I buy pre-made tart shells (they are about three inches in diameter at the top). Fill them with the recipe below and bake for 20 to 25 minutes at 350 degrees.
Spinach quiche tarts
6 to 8 large spinach leaves, washed and drained
2 tablespoons chopped onion
1 tablespoon light olive oil
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup grated cheese (I used cheddar)
Salt and pepper to taste
Saute onion in olive oil. Add spinach leaves when onions are translucent. When spinach is wilted, stir in to beaten egg. Add salt and pepper, then stir in cheese. Fill tart shells. Bake 20 to 25 minutes in 350-degree oven.
